Property details

A charming example of a four double bedroom Victorian house, this terraced property on Fairmount Road will tick boxes for a wide range of purchasers. The house is perfectly positioned on one of Brixton’s coveted residential streets, Fairmount Road, an attractive residential road just off Brixton Hill, this popular street benefits from a quiet setting as the road wraps around onto Beechdale Road, which results in no through traffic, only allowing access to these particular houses on these two desirable roads. The property is only a short walk away from some of Brixton’s most sought-after primary schools, the local amenities of vibrant Brixton Hill, the ever-popular Brockwell Park and the fantastic variety of nightlife and restaurants on offer in central Brixton. With access to the Victoria line at Brixton tube station also within a ten-minute stroll and Herne Hill a pleasant fifteen-minute walk through the park, there is something to cater for all tastes and the location cannot be overstated.

In short, a beautiful terrace on a sought-after street, close to the action but far enough away to retain a real sense of calm. The property is a light and airy mix of contemporary design and characterful features which include; wooden flooring, high ceilings, feature fireplaces and coving. Boasting acres of room, four large bedrooms and a peaceful South-West facing garden to boot, the house is truly an impressive proposition. The property comprises a double-aspect reception and dining room with doors onto the un-extended side return and a modern kitchen diner with breakfast bar which leads onto a sunny and well-maintained rear garden. On the upper floors sit the four double bedrooms and two modern bathrooms. The master bedroom is a fantastic size, running the width of the property with multiple windows that allows natural light to flood into the room.

This home is a blank canvas, making it an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to stamp their own mark on a property rather than pay a premium for someone else’s taste. A brilliant selling point for this characterful Victorian home is the versatility the house offers; with over 1700 square feet of internal living space, the layout can be altered to suit the purchaser's living requirements. The property benefits from considerable loft space and a cellar offering excellent storage options. There is also potential to extend, subject to the necessary permissions, into the side return or up into the loft allowing the new owner to further maximise the abundance of living space available.

There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the style, size, outside space and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer. Chain free.
